If you do increase main jet you may also try changing air correction jet, I
don't remember if bigger or smaller but I could check it for you.
This type of thing needs some experimenting.

I like the mild cam and exhaust combination, I think the solexes are fine
for a good mid range.
However, I would get my heads a "flow job" per the Bill Fisher book, and
install head temp gauges as you won't have any "heating" - exhaust cooling,
